If you subscribe to size mattering, then this isn't the greatest of places that
you can go to. Even considering that it is a niche exhibition, the depth of display
is limited. What we mean is, for an interior decoration exhibition, you would
assume that there would be about 4-5 brands/manufacturers of each product category
displaying their latest. What you see here is a good breadth of display in terms
of the number of the varieties of products, but the number of exhibitors is limited
- to about a dozen, even including JNTU and IIID itself.
Given that, this 4th annual exhibition organized by the Hyderabad chapter of the
Indian Institute of Interior Decoration does meet its purpose to a significant
extent - that of having a demonstration of the latest trends, the newer products
in interior decoration. There is, as we noted, a wide variety of household furnishing
requirements, such as lighting, air-conditioning, flooring, glass, security systems,
plants and furniture, on display in the various stalls of the manufacturers/fabricators.
There are also office furnishing innovations on display, in the form of workstations
and healthy seating. In fact, if the purpose were only to showcase newer developments/innovations
to designers, then a large number of exhibitors in each variety is probably not
required, and maybe that is why the size is small.
The main exhibitors include Metal World, Electrical Lines, Veena, Seating World,
Srinivasa Engineering and Godrej (the sponsor). If you are an interior designer,
or even an enthusiast, this is a must see. Nothing here is for sale, though. Please
